State Courts Closed Today for Furlough
FRANKFORT, KY - State courts will be closed today as part of an ongoing cost-cutting move by the Kentucky Judicial Branch.
The entire court system will be shut down, including the Kentucky Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Circuit Court and District Court, and no court services will be available.
That means, among other things, no drivers licenses or release orders will be issued.
The shutdown is the second of three furlough days scheduled this year as the court system looks to curb expenses. The next one will be Oct. 15.
